Conservatives, including Trump, were quick to slam former President Barack Obama in 2012 when it appeared he bowed to then-Saudi leader King Abdullah at a G-20 summit. Obama and former President George W. Bush have both received the medal Trump accepted Saturday.
And now for the tweets on Trump’s approach to the Saudi king:
Last words from @POTUS before deplaning Air Force One: “I catch one American bowing here and you’re on the next Saudia flight home”…

had Obama given the Saudi king a dainty little curtsy Michelle Malkin would have written an entire book around it

@roulanski @Peezey33 Bowing is a sign of respect not subjugation. Curtsying on the other hand is just weird and pathetic.

We don’t care what anyone else says, Mr. President ― you curtsy as much as you want.
